draftlotto is hereHi all, I'm new to this forum, and wanted to introduce myself  I'm interested in math of all sorts. In particular, I've lately been interested in the calculation of probabilities related to draft lotteries (e.g. NBA, NHL draft lotteries) using a variety of methods, including Monte Carlo simulation and exact methods. Related to that, I've been developing an application that can calculate draft lottery probabilities for a lot of different scenarios. If you're interested, I've started a website  just add a .com to my username . #2 20130803 00:19:16
Re: draftlotto is hereHi draftlotto; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20130803 08:07:22
